Random Five Photos for February


Since I have a surplus of random photos,  I picked five for the Willy Nilly Friday blog hop. The first one shows Front Royal's Main Street, which is not as busy as it once was. Traffic has been routed around it for years by way of a bypass, but it's still popular with locals as well as with tourists who visit for history or antique shopping.  Sharing with My Town Shoot Out.


Our snow has pretty much melted but I needed a picture for Photo Friday's "White" challenge so here's one from a few weeks ago. I realize there's more shadow than white here, but I'm referencing the expression "white as snow."

Photo #3 is a sunset for Skywatch Friday. We are blessed with a west-facing view so I am able to spot sunsets from our living room.


Photo 4 is not for a linkup. It's a decades-old picture I took of my sister and her daughter with my mom in the background. 


Last of all is a meme I made today because I am tired of seeing "click bait," especially memes that ask you to "Like" and "Share."   

Only people with a special ability can read this. If you can, share it so your friends
can see you have this characteristic.
